Resources for K-12 Educators

The resources in this section were developed by the Center’s former Outreach Program and are the result of a variety of workshops, public talks, and other projects intended to aid K-12 educators in teaching about the Middle East. These programs and the resulting resources offered here were made possible by Title VI grant funding from the U.S. Department of Education and by other generous donors including Saudi Aramco.

K-12 teachers are encouraged to visit the Global Studies Outreach at Harvard website, which provides information about teacher resources offered individually and collaboratively by other regional and international centers at Harvard. 

Questions regarding CMES outreach and the resources and programs in this section may be directed to CMES Administrative and Program Assistant Carol Ann Litster at
